Everybody's Okay!

So, Mama Pea and I have been fielding inquiries from dear, loving friends concerned about our other dear, loving friends in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Everyone's fine - they hardly felt the earthquake.  Apparently, the bulk of it was felt near/in/around Richmond.  And, I'm sure Erin will give us a full report as soon as she's done prepping for the hurricane that's bound directly for them!

(Makes me GLAD I live where I do!!!!)
